An outdoor kitchen, a contemporary pool and spa with organic rockwork against a raised greenbelt backdrop created the perfect backyard fusion. Often, we find properties where impervious cover restrictions, elevations, access and soil conditions challenge us to create simple yet innovative designs like this client’s property. The outdoor kitchen under the covered patio with a large dining table offers a family gathering place with the magnificent backdrop to the pool. The three “stair-stepped” metal scuppers create soothing sounds and when the pool lights up at night adding ambience and aesthetic. The positioning of an upper deck for lounge chairs allows for full sun when needed. This design made full use of 360-degree deck around the pool.
